From Oldenburg to Osnabrück, the route of megalithic culture in Emsland runs around 330 kilometers to 33 well-preserved Neolithic burial sites that were built around 5000 years ago. And detours from this route lead to other "dole graves" or at least to places where special rock formations serve as an indication of buildings from the Early Stone Age.

This article shows photos of the following megalithic tombs:

Anyone who deals with Stone Age buildings may first think of England's world-famous stone circle called Stonehenge. But also individually standing menhirs (Celtic/large stone), rows of stones (French/alignements), cromlechs (Welsh/curvature) and dolmens (Breton/stone table) are well-known designations for buildings whose age is estimated at 3000 to 5000 years. The different languages ​​already show that these are not regionally limited architectural or structural achievements.
